Fall Supper Club (September 2023)

Last week I hosted a fall Supper Club! It’s hard to believe this is our 9th year of monthly dinners together — and my first time hosting in our new home!

At the beginning of the year when I sent out the sign-up, we were drowning in renovation construction. I remember thinking there would be NO way I could even think about hosting a dinner party in our home until much later in the year, so I grabbed the month of September — and the timing worked out perfectly for a fall tablescape!

Fall Supper Club Tablescape

Almost every tablescape item was purchased from Amazon. I usually stick to greens and blues so I thought it would be fun to break out some brighter colors this time.

  • Tablecloth (Color: Clover): The tablecloth was the first item I purchased, and then I built the rest of the tablescape around it! I now own this tablecloth in 4 colors and love them all so much. The quality is so good and all of the patterns are gorgeous.
  • Dinner Plates: These 10.5″ porcelain dinner plates feature a pretty gold trim that really elevates the placesetting.
  • Goblet Wine Glasses: I was excited to break in my new goblet glasses that two of my girlfriends surprised me with for a housewarming gift! You can find them in four really pretty colors too.
  • Bamboo Flatware: I’ve seen this flatware set priced pretty high at several places and was able to find a 20-piece set at a fraction of the cost on Amazon.
  • Bamboo Napkin Ring Holder
  • Embroidered Napkins: Another find with lots of patterns, colors and sizes!
  • Cane Wrapped Vases: I purchased my vases from At Home on clearance, but you can also find them on Amazon (HERE + HERE)
  • Flowers: I love how my flower arrangements turned out! I grabbed most of the flowers from the grocery store, but also stopped in at the Charlotte Flower Market to grab some more unique stems to add in.

The Food

Since I knew I’d be spending more time on my tablescape this year, I decided to outsource the food this year. I tend to get hostess neurosis if I’m scrambling to set the table, whip up the appetizers, and move things in and out of the oven. Here’s what I served…

Apple Cider Margaritas

For my cocktail, I whipped up some Apple Cider Margaritas. These were easy to make ahead of the girls arrival. In a shaker, I mixed up the ingredients below, poured over ice, and garnished with sliced apples and a cinnamon stick:

  • 2 oz Tequila
  • 1 oz Cointreau
  • 1.5 oz Apple Cider
  • .5 oz Maple Syrup

For a light snack before dinner, I served a few small things — avocado hummus (from Flower Child), Tzatziki dip, and goat cheese stuffed peppadew peppers (from Ilios Noche). Matt and I order the peppadew peppers every date night we have at Ilios Noche and they are just so dang good. I’ve been saying for a while now that I should pick up an order of these to serve at one of our parties and finally did! And they went FAST as I suspected they would!


For dinner, I picked up a family meal from Flower Child! I served the organic strawberry & roasted beet salad, chicken, red chili glazed sweet potato, and Sichuan green beans. All of it was delicious and easy to reheat just before serving.


And for dessert, I served mini bundt cakes from Nothing Bundt Cakes — strawberries & cream, gluten-free chocolate chip, and lemon! SO GOOD!

After dinner, we played a few games of mahjong before calling it a night! It was another great supper club dinner down in the books! It felt so good to have all 7 girls gathered around my dining table together in our new home.

Okay but let's be real for a second - how do you keep Supper Club from being a comparison game? Who has the best home? The best food? The best-behaved children? The prettiest table? Etc., etc.,etc. Does anyone ever order pizza and eat it in the backyard on paper plates? LOL!

Honestly, none of those things have ever been an issue for us over the last decade. I'm really grateful for our group of girls. I should also mention that each girl hosts one dinner per year and really looks forward to it! We can break out our favorite dishes, arrange pretty flowers, and whip up a favorite meal (or order from a favorite restaurant). It's different for each girl which makes its so much fun! xo
